What to carry?
To make your trip planning easier we share some of our thoughts on:
Besides your basic personal clothing we suggest following cloths based on the weather and experiences of our past guests
As the temperatures rises during the summer it is advised to take loose clothing along with at least one winter wear -a light jacket or a shawl, as there can be chill in the morning & evening. Loose cotton pyjamas or pants are suggested with one or two full sleeves shirts, T-shirts or tops to protect from insects. For, ladies Punjabi salwar suites if not trousers will be helpful in moving around and taking part in some activity.
We would suggest that going by the temperature guidelines; kindly carry adequate winter clothing as per your body needs. There isn’t any central heating system so the clothing should be warm enough. A cap along with gloves will come handy in extreme cold weather. Please remember that you may not get proper heating in the rooms at times so please plan accordingly.
We would advise you to carry with you all the basic medicines for headache, stomach ache, upset stomach, body ache, fever, cough & cold, anti allergic, antibiotics for toothache along with any other medicine which you are used to having on a regular basis as we may not get all the medicines in the interiors. The medicines can be brought along or you may buy them from cities on the way up.
A pair of shoes suitable for walking in the hilly terrain is advisable along with a sleeper or sandals as per personal likings.
Besides your daily needs, please do carry a moisturizer as the skin may turn dry because of the weather. In summers, may need to carry a prickly heat powder, mosquito repellent & a deodorant too.
- A small torch will be handy if power goes off or whilst negotiating a path during nights.
- You may carry a token gift for your hosts though not very costly as that helps in building the bond and its also a tradition.
- Carry a small notebook & a pen to jot down your experiences.
- If you want to take your memories further, take your camera with a spare set of batteries.
